While we all are living in 2018, this 25 year old Pune dude is living in 2093. Nilesh Khedekar took Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri to a whole new level after he put up 300 hoardings and banners across the area just to apologize to his girlfriend.
The hoardings read “Shivde, I am sorry.” with a red heart emoji. Apparently, the Khedekar dude, who’s also pursuing MBA currently, spent over a whooping 72,000 INR to cover the Pimple Saudagar area of Pimpri Chinchwad. And Steve Wozniak said Indians weren’t creative?
However, the photos of the hoardings went viral on social media and it caught the attention of authorities. Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation registered a police case against him for defacing the area by putting up illegal hoardings.
“Khedekar told that he had some differences with his girlfriend whom he called ‘Shivde’. In order to apologise to her, he came up with this idea of putting up hoardings and banners in the area where she stays. Khedekar roped in his friend to execute the plan,” a police officer from Wakad police station told DNA.
"Shivde I am sorry".

“When we received some complaints that some illegal hoardings have been put up, we started inquiring. We visited number of flex printing firms and from one of those firms, we got a contact of a person. The person was identified as Vilas Shinde who turned out to be the friend of Khedekar. Shinde told us that Khedekar had given him the task to put up those hoardings and banners,” the officer said.
